Live as you dream...dream as you live

What are dreams?...Dreams are little bits and pieces of our memories that come alive while we are sleeping. Sometimes dreams feel so real that once you wake up, you spend a moment wondering if you were dreaming or you were awake. Some believe that dreams carry messages and hidden meanings. Dreams can be seen as experiences...dreams also carry your hidden fears and memories of the past.

I have often read that when you lie down in your bed at night and start thinking positive, happy thoughts these thoughts will channel into beautiful and relaxing dreams. But wait a minute does it have anything to do with the law of attraction which has become the number one topic these days? Yes, according to The Secret "thoughts are magnetic, and thoughts have a frequency. As you think thoughts, they are sent out to the Universe, and they magnetically attract all like things that are on the same frequency. Everything sent out returns to the source-you!" How about this proverb “What goes around, comes around!” If you think about it, there is a strong meaning behind this proverb which basically says whatever you do, in the end of the day it will come back to you. Good or bad the secret lies in your choice, and the choice is yours.

Back in the days when I was living a stressful life and a job that had me on my toes 24/7, my dear friend Elaine Sarantakos who is a Fabulous Living Coach ( once told me “Elena, you say that you are stressed and the more you say it the more stress you will receive. This is the law of attraction”. Instead, she suggested that I read The Secret and create a vision board of my true desires and dreams. I focused on living a stress free life and this was the message that I had sent out to the Universe. I think that I have managed it to a certain extent and now I am trying to live my fabulous life but I not 100% there yet. :)

My two favourite quotes about dreams and thoughts are:

"You have the powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind." - darvin P. Kingsley

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”- Anatole France

Enjoy your Magical life! Start living your passion


  1. What an excellent start to your blog!Well Done! I loved this blog to live as your dream. This past January I had a dream I was flying to Barcelona in the summer. My dream felt so real as though I was actually in Barcelona when I awoke. In April of this year, I watched the movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona and fell in love! It was just like my dream. Two days later I decided to spend this summer in Spain. I am typing from Spain right now which would have not been possible unless I had listened to my dreams!

    Follow your heart!

  2. I totally agree with you my Fabulous Life Coach! If you don't reach out for your own dreams, no one will. I remember in my Graduation speech how I quoted Mark my closing line with the following quote "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

    I so love this quote, it is trully inspirational. We have to get out there and discover, safe is just too plain boring!

    Follow your heart, follow your dreams!
